Wilson Blade 98 v9 (18x20) is a sharper tennis racket perfect for players who want ultimate control and feel. With 20 years of dominance, Wilson's Blade performance racquets continue to be the best choice for tennis players looking for the ultimate mix of control, power, feel, and stability.

The Blade 98 (18x20) V9 has a sharper, more stable response that provides a greater sense of contact between racquet and the ball. Its braided graphite + basalt frame with DirectConnect carbon fiber handle also provides enhanced feel and improved torsional stability. Model Blade v9 wears the really nice color Emerald Night Green and has a matte finish. Equipped with FORTYFIVE°, a patented carbon construction in the frame, this rack is a little more flexible and stable; all to create an extra comfortable connection to the ball. StableFeel technology enhances the racquet's crisp response and the feel of its control-oriented string pattern. The tight string pattern of 18x20 makes it more control-oriented compared to the Blade v9 98 model with a 16x20 string pattern, which is suitable for players who want more speed. So the 18x20 suits good players who want more control and precision and who generate speed themselves.

Highlights:

  • Smaller head size: Improves precision and provides a crisp feel.
  • 18x20 string pattern: A tight string pattern improves feel and precision.
  • Innovations: Updated features and composition improve stability to create a more connected-to-the-ball feel

Reviews

I've practiced tennis all my life and know how important it is to use technique to make it stick. Just had the opportunity to try TopspinPro and wish I had discovered it sooner! Now both me and my tennis playing kids can practice technique and fundamentals at home, really fun and easy! Highly recommended regardless of ambition level.

I serve 60 times a day with ServeMaster and have noticed an improvement in just a few weeks. Yesterday I played a match and felt so confident when I served.
